Stop Interfering with Iran’s Internal Affairs

Our esteemed colleague, Mr. Nasrollah Ahoorhoush Shirazi, the director of Jouhan Newspaper, sent a telegram addressed to the prime minister of France and pointed out that Hoveyda had destroyed the country for fifteen years and put the freedom-seekers in SAVAK prisons; therefore, it does not befit the prime minister of France to support such a notorious element as Hoveyda.

The director of Joshan Newspaper, in another letter, addressed to the minister of justice, cited Hoveyda’s record in the Paris smuggling incident, and called him [Hoveyda] a Baha’i preacher in Turkey. He pointed out that Hoveyda had abused the carte blanch given to the Iranian embassy in Germany during the ambassadorship of Abdollah Entezam. In closing, Mr. Ahoorhoush announced that he is prepared to testify at the Islamic Revolutionary Court.
